Volunteering at the Garden
Several volunteers came forward in 1996 to be trained as garden docents, and they have become a strong corps to lead public tours through the Botanical Garden. Reservations for free 30- to 60-minute tours can be made for groups, e.g., schools, civic groups, horticultural clubs, and seniors associations. These tours teach botany and some of the interesting lore surrounding particular specimens in the collection, starting at The Nest. MEMBG welcomes volunteers eager to be trained as Docents.
MEMBG encourages adults with an interest in plant cultivation to become Volunteer Gardeners. This program, comprised of enthusiastic individuals from the local UCLA community and surrounding area, devote at least four hours per week helping to maintain the quality of the collection, and in the process learn many useful aspects of horticulture and botany.
